Why Choose Document Options

Automated invoice scanning eliminates the need for slow, manual data entry by your staff. Key information is automatically extracted from invoices and validated for accuracy. Scanned invoices are indexed and routed digitally to appropriate personnel.

Our automated invoice processing service provides an efficient digitisation solution optimised for streamlined workflows. Built-in rules and logic allow for automated exception handling and approvals during the invoice review process. Real-time dashboards give full visibility into invoice processing statuses for tracking and monitoring. Scanned invoices are stored in secure, searchable digital archives for easy access and retrieval. The invoice data extracted during scanning integrates directly into your ERP and accounting systems for posting and reporting. With automated data capture, routing, storage and system integration, we optimise invoice processing efficiency, security and insights.

Automation reduces invoice processing costs by up to 80% while accelerating cycle times. Compliance is improved with proper e-storage of scanned invoices. Let us optimise your process through fast, accurate automated scanning and extraction of invoice data.

How Invoice Automation Works

Invoices are scanned using high-speed OCR scanners capable of intelligent data capture. Key information like amounts, purchase order numbers, dates etc. is automatically extracted from the invoice by the software. The captured data is validated against databases to ensure accuracy. 

Valid invoices are automatically routed via predefined workflows to approvers. Any exceptions or mismatches are easily flagged for review. Once approved, invoices are posted directly into your accounting system. All scanned invoices are stored in a secure digital archive that is easily searchable. Real-time dashboards provide visibility into invoice processing statuses. 

Machine learning algorithms continually improve the data extraction process over time. The automated scanning, data capture, routing and posting integrate seamlessly into your existing accounts payable systems and processes, eliminating manual steps.
